Pancake breakfasts? Bake sales? Spaghetti suppers? Election day eats are a big deal in much of the country, and Ithaca is no exception.
The Ithaca Rotary Clubs election day pancake breakfast is the proverbial 800-pound gorilla in election day food events, and it’s a great choice for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It runs from 7am-7pm with an all-you-can-eat $9 breakfast, this year at Coltivare.
The Dryden United Methodist Church is holding a buffet-style Election Day Supper at their four-corners location at 9 East Main Street in Dryden. $8 for adults or $4 for kids 5-12 gets you chicken and homemade biscuits, baked squash, mashed potatoes, pies, salad, and more.
Both the Newfield Public Library and Greater Ithaca Activities Center are holding election day bake sales. GIAC’s runs from 9:30am-5pm, teaming up the GIAC Senior Program and GIAC Youth Division for a sale at GIAC’s 301 West Court Street facility.
